IGS Solar, LLC, a turnkey commercial and residential solar provider, has teamed up with New Bedford, Massachusetts-based firm Beaumont Solar Co., a full-service solar energy system installer, to build a 1.3 MW ground-mounted solar array that will provide renewable energy to the Bourne community.
“We are delighted to be working with IGS and the local community to make this groundbreaking project a reality,” said Phil Cavallo, president & CEO of Beaumont Solar Co. “A hallmark of making this initiative come to life for the rate payers in this community has been the ability to work cooperatively with local town, utility, and state agencies.”

The community solar farm is currently being constructed at 53 MacArthur Blvd in Bourne. It will provide participating local businesses and residents with the opportunity to save on their electric bills and have access to clean, renewable energy. Additionally as part of the project, IGS and the primary customer in the program, the Bourne Recreation Authority, have signed a long-term agreement to provide clean energy to the John Gallo Ice Arena.
